K. Kinugasa (Gunma Astronomical Observatory) and K. Torii (Osaka U.) report:

 The error region of GRB 051109b (Tagliaferri, et al. GCN 4222) was imaged
by the robotic 0.25m GETS telescope in the Gunma Astronomical Observatory.
Unfiltered imaging started at 08:52:45 UT (13.1 minutes after the trigger)
and 30 s integration was repeated.

 We do not identify a new object within the BAT error region (Hullinger, et
al. GCN 4222) and the following 3-sigma upper limits are derived relative to
USNO-A1.0 R mag.

StartUT  Limit  Nframes
08:52:45 >18.7  20
09:06:33 >18.7  20
09:35:32 >18.4  30
